The Knoydart 7                                                                 UK Ultras

Few areas in Great Britain attract more superlatives than Knoydart. This wild, remote mountain peninsula bounded by the fjord-like lochs of Nevis (meaning heaven) and Hourn (meaning hell) encapsulates the unique character of the Western Highlands so well. At its heart is Ladhar Bheinn: its combination of mountain grandeur and remoteness perfected by the close presence of the sea. Against this backdrop Digby Harris completed a solo, unsupported, on-sight run linking seven Munros  and took 15 hours 34 minutes.  The run, which took place in 2009, started from Inverie, covered some 39 miles, ascended some 17,000 feet and traversed some of Scotland’s roughest, toughest terrain: the Rough Bounds of Knoydart are so named for a reason! See below for a copy of Digby’s article and for links to information about Knoydart.

It has nothing to do with running, of course, so you would not be interested to know that Inverie, which has to be reached by ferry, is also home to the Old Forge which is, according to the Guiness Book of Records, the most remote pub in mainland Britain!  So there would be really no reason to go there apart from to repeat this run!
